Margaret Clark worked with children and teenagers for years before she began writing books, thus she has broad insight into the problems faced by her listening public. With over 100 books to her name (or credited to one of her aliases), Clark has made a career out of tapping into youthful psyches.
Australian actor Mark Mitchell also has extensive experience in children's entertainment, having been featured in numerous television programs and movies geared toward a young audience. In Board Shorts Mitchell becomes Pup Morgan, whose one true love is surfing. And the minute Pup ditches school with his legendary surfer dad, Mitchell's voice becomes more animated, reflecting the character's new lease on life.
But it's just as well Pup takes his lucky board shorts for the ride. Life as a shark biscuit in the surf is only part of Pup's problems.
